The Bucks County Chapter of the Board of Associates of Fox Chase Cancer Center will celebrate the excitement of Rio de Janeiro’s Carnival with the event “April in Rio” to be held on Saturday, April 12, 2014 from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m., at the James A. Michener Art Museum (138 South Pine Street in Doylestown, PA).
Read more about this limited seating event below or click here to order tickets, become a sponsor, view live and silent auction items, or contribute to the special pledge. Dress for the event is cocktail attire. All money raised at the event will benefit research at Fox Chase Cancer Center.
The festivities will include a cocktail hour and silent auction in the museum’s elegant courtyard. Guests will enjoy the sounds of Sambagrilo—a Brazilian jazz and bossa nova band that will evoke the ambiance of Ipanema. Brazilian-themed delicacies will be served at dinner in the glass-walled dining room of the Edgar N. Putman Event Pavilion and Bill Schutt will conduct a live auction featuring items such as trips to Tuscany and Scotland, and tango lessons for six people followed by dinner.
This year’s “Special Pledge” will benefit precision medicine research. At Fox Chase, cancer specialists are able to use an individual’s unique DNA sequences to determine that person’s risk of cancer. They also use DNA sequencing to identify targeted treatments that can provide the best outcome for an individual patient. You can read more about precision medicine research here.
